This advanced full sole ballet shoe is constructed of lightweight, super soft, durable leather. Features include a cotton lining, a cotton drawstring, a suede sock liner, and an attached elastic strap. See sizing tab for important fitting suggestions.
Note that the drawstring is cotton, not elastic, like most other ballet shoes. Therefore the shoes gap quite a bit when tied tight enough and don't form to the feet like other brands do. For a very young dancer, these ballet shoes might work. But use caution, as they aren't very flexible. I had to return these and buy the same brand we have bought in the past that have elastic drawstrings.
Per the recommendations listed, we ordered a size smaller than street shoe for my daughter. However, when we received them, they are actually too small. In our case, we would've been better with only half a size smaller or actual street shoe size.
What adult size do I need for my daughter if she just outgrew the 2.5 kids?
To convert to adult size, please use the chart under the sizing tab for the adult size T2000. Once you have converted the Girl's street size to adult then follow the Suggested Fitting. - DDS Customer Service (05/21/2020)

A size 1.5 is approximately 20.3 centimeters and this style runs one size large. Therefore, the best suggestion would be a size 13.5. Please note that we cannot guarantee the sizing. - DDS Customer Service (02/24/2014)
